Book Review: A Waiting Wave
Haven't had much time to catch up with reading since I started college. The last book I read is called A Waiting Wave by Kulpreet Yadav. The author was kind enough to send me a copy of his book and I must say, it was a lovely read! If you find yourself enjoying romance, adventure, and action packed novels then I recommend you add this book to your reading list. It revolves around the love story of a couple "Harry and Kareena", a simple, average young man who fell in love and had to earn the respect of a beautiful young woman and maintain there relationship enduring numerous difficulties. The plot itself had an excessive amount of events happening one after the other, fit for a movie plot with all the action in it. Felt like reading a movie. The writing in some parts was endearing and the description and imagery in the story was beautiful. Rather then giving away the plot, i'll leave you with my favorite passages from the book:
"Like the grass, the hillock was lush green, almost like a water color painting done bright, its green in a perpetual competition with the blue of the sea for brilliance."
"She thought the world men lived in was all squares, rectangles and circles, always predictable either straight or round. Whereas girls saw more and better shapes. In addition to what the men saw: they saw curves, just like the ones that adorned their bodies, they saw loops, waves and hyperboles and a whole lot of other shapes which made the world seem enhanced, more coherent, more caring and forbearing."
"She accepted it gracefully, ignoring the coincidence, ignoring the ripple that crawled from the root of her spine with a known suddenness."
